Sunset Boulevard Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

Other reds may have stolen larger audiences, but Zinfandel (once California’s most prized variety) refuses to be forgotten.

Inspired by the 1950 Paramount Pictures classic, Sunset Boulevard, this sumptuous, old-vine release is as complex as the character of Norma Desmond and is definitely ready for its close up. Hailing from Lodi (Wine Enthusiast’s 2015 Region of the Year) and the fantastic 2015 vintage, it overflows with rich blue-and-black fruit, enticing violet, and subtle spice aromas and flavors.

With its fruit-driven character and velvety texture, this bewitching Zinfandel is an enjoyable sip by itself. However, it really comes into its own when served with barbecued or roasted meats (think grilled flat-iron steak, pulled pork, or even roast leg of lamb). Or, take inspiration from the grape’s Italian-American heritage and pair it with hearty pasta dishes or spicy pepperoni pizza.
